The blue angels are in town for Fleet Week here in San Francisco. They've been practicing all week over Alcatraz and around the bay, and with our view, it's been awesome watching them perform some of their maneuvers. They've also been flying right over the building -- close enough to see in the cockpit. It's tons of fun, and the noise they make when flying that close shakes the windows and sets off car alarms.
I keep noticing startups (and larger companies, too) making some really basic mistakes that end up leading to a lot of downtime. Here's my list of 6 really easy things you can do to avoid major downtime.
Woke up to a great sunny view on the bay today. It's a nice surprise, because we've been getting more fog than we did Jan-Apr (although someone said we were supposed to get rain then?).
I've just started waking up without using an alarm clock -- sometimes, it's more effective to just sleep as much as you need to, as you get more done during the day than you would have if you gained an extra hour. Just read Time's interview with Mark Zuckerberg today too, where he mentions the same thing.
